This old listed pub is owned by Greene King according to What Pub, although I could see no identification of ownership on the exterior. It's full blown Olde Worlde both inside and out. Going through the main door there is a room to the left that looked more like a dining room and a room to the right where the bar is. I went right, it had a wooden floor, beams, wooden panelled walls, leaded windows, a huge fireplace with a roaring fire and some sherry or wine casks for standing drinkers. There was another area further to the right and there may well have been more that I didn't find.
The bar has six hand pumps which had GK IPA & OSH, Doom Bore, Brains Bread Of Heaven, TT Landlord and the Locale Brentwood Gold. I went for the Brentwood Gold (£3.50) which was in excellent condition and I have to say cheaper than I expected.
I liked this place and would have given it a 9 if it had a more inspired choice of beers. It's GBG 2018 listed.

The Ship is a really nice looking pub and one of three that are close to each other.
Once inside the bar faces on entry,this room is bare boarded and has a beamed ceiling,the room is divided into half by a wall,the walls are wood panelled and the seating is normal tables and chairs,there is a separate room to the left which is through an opened our doorway,this seemed more like a dining room and had normal tables and chairs,there is another small room which is behind the bar.
There was a good choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Courage Best which went down well,the other beers were Butcombe Gold,Ship Ale,Adnams Broadside,Taylor Landlord and Doom Bar.
This is a very pleasant pub to have a drink in.
The pub is closer to Romford town centre than Gidea Park sation.

Great 4 roomed pub (one non smoking) that although is in town has a country feel.Very friendly staff and locals who make you feel welcome.3 real ales on with Broadside being in perfect form.Special deals on food.Log fire in winter.Do give this pub a visit.15/20 minutes from Gidea Park station.Buses from Romford pass the door.
